Slate comments on the lead that Romney still has and focuses on the issue that many others have raised -- how fast is his support slipping and how
fast is the support for other candidates rising? Although it seems clear from polls and surveys that he will win, the real question is the margin of
the win. His sound bite on "I like to fire people" has gone viral and although most know that he referred to getting rid of service providers that
were not providing a good service, it hasn't helped him a bit.
From another story -- voting began at midnight, which means they've had about 10
hours to check exit polls and so forth. I'm not sure when the first reports on percentages will come in. Many voters seem to be undecided at this
The Dixville Notch results are interesting -- I didn't know that they were also holding the Democratic primary at the same time. An interesting
factlet is that since 1968, the winner in Dixville Notch has been the Republican nominee for president.

projecting today's votes based on polls.)
